Chapter 21: The Epic Of Gilgamesh

genesis6-section2-chap21Utnapishtim was not the archetypal patriarch of peace as Noah was, selected and entrusted to repopulate the earth in righteousness with his pure Sethite progeny, as the so- called secular scholars would have us believe. Utnapishtim was the antithesis of this doctrine and of Noah; Utnapishtim was the quintessential Nephilim. He was a tyrannical, evil potentate, just like Gilgamesh. Once more, the Mesopotamian flood narratives were not the source documents for the biblical flood. They were merely parallel legends, recanting and detailing in mythology for the future generations the survival story from the deluge concerning the Nephilim.

According to the Sumerian Lamentation Texts concerning the deluge, the peculiar statement, “… the flood storm which overwhelmed the living creatures of heaven and earth— the Black Head Ones,” 32 leaves a puzzling enigma if it is not properly analyzed and deciphered. This statement confirms that Nephilim lived with mortal humans in antediluvian times, noting that the deluge overwhelmed both the humans and the beings fathered by the heavenly realm. Just as important, we can deduce that the Black Heads were the intermingled race of the antediluvian Sumerians corrupted by the Nephilim and part of the originating race of day six governed by Cainites.

Let us now bring the book of Enoch back into context to connect the Babylonian flood to Genesis as the source document. Mahway, Nephilim son of the fallen angel Barakel, received nightmares about the coming deluge and asked Enoch to interpret his dreams, from which Mahway learned there was nothing the giants could do to prevent the deluge or their own destruction. The narrative then moves on, naming one of the giants present at this gathering as Gilgamesh. 33 Gilgamesh was also listed as a giant in the Enoch Book of Giants recovered among the Dead Sea Scrolls on fragment 4Q531. 34

My point is this: if Gilgamesh, the Anunnaki/Nephilim, was recorded in the biblical source documents as one of the giants intimately involved with the knowledge of the coming deluge, then he was likely the one and the same as the Gilgamesh that recanted the Utnapishtim flood narrative renowned as the Epic of Gilgamesh.
